【重庆市名校联盟 2014 联合模拟】D Jack Andraka from Maryland won the grand prize at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. It is the largest high school science competition in the world. The Maryland teenager is the youngest winner of the $75,000 award，who was chosen from among 1,500 students in 70 countries. Jack Andraka invented a test for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of cancer. He started to learn it after losing a close family friend to the disease. “I went on the Internet and I found that 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than a 2% chance of survival,” he says, “ and I was thinking, ‘That’s not right. We should be able to do something.’ ” He found that early discovery is important to increasing the chances of surviving the disease. The Maryland teenager requested and received permission to work in a laboratory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. There he developed a simple paper test, which can identify the disease in a single drop of blood. His test has proven correct 90% of the time. It also is 100 times more sensitive than other tests. “It costs three cents per test, and then also it takes only five minutes to run.” he said. Jack’s success wouldn’t have been possible without Anirban Maitra, a professor at Johns Hopkins. He was the only person among the 200 researchers Jack contacted who showed interest in his project. “I was very surprised that this was a 15-year old boy who was writing this. I wanted to meet this clever young man and see what he wanted to talk about and so I called him over for an interview.”
Jack worked in Professor Maitra’s laboratory, completing his project in seven months. The government has given the Maryland teenager patent rights to the pancreatic cancer test. He is now talking with companies about developing the test into a simple product. Whatever happens, the professor believes Jack Andraka’s name is one we will be hearing again over the next 10 to 20 years. 48. What made Jack Andraka research pancreatic cancer? _____ A.

49. We can infer from the text that Jack Andraka _____. A. left a deep impression on Professor Maitra. B. was thought highly of by companies. C. got support from others easily.

A. become rich C. get a good job B. make contributions continually D. make products to treat cancer
51. What’s the best title for the test? _____ A. Intel International Science and Engineering Fair B. Jack Andraka’s fights against cancer C. Research on Pancreatic cancer D. Teenage cancer research 【参考答案】48—51、CABD
【重庆市名校联盟 2014 联合模拟】E Although man has known asbestos for many hundreds of years, it was not until 160 years ago that it was mined for the first time on the North American continent. H. W. Johns, owner of a New York City Supply Shop for roofers, was responsible for the opening of that first mine.
Mr. Johns was given a piece of asbestos which had been found in Italy. He experimented with the material and then showed its surprising powers to his customers. After putting on a pair of asbestos gloves, which looked much like ordinary work gloves, he took red-hot coals from the fireplace and played with them in his hands. How astonished the customers were to discover that he was not burned at all. You can well imagine that he had increasing business in asbestos roofing materials. However, because it was very expensive to transport them from Italy to the United States, Mr. Johns sent out a young scientist to seek a source nearer home. This young man found great vein(岩 脉), in the province of Quebec in Canada. Ever since 1881 Quebec has led the world in the production of this unusual mineral, which is made up of magnesium, silicon, iron, and oxygen. When it is mined, the asbestos is heavy, just as you would expect a mineral to be. When it is separated, a strange thing happens; the rock breaks down into fine, soft, soapy fibers. Scientists do not know why the rock can be separated easily into threads, but they have found thousands of uses of this fireproof material, of the so-called “cloth of stone”. 52. Which title best expresses the main idea of this passage? A. Asbestos mined in Canada C. A “wonder” mineral B. Fireproof matter D. A new roofing material
53. Johns proved his ability as a salesman by_______. A. going into roofing business C. sending a trained scientist B. carrying asbestos from Italy D. showing the use of asbestos gloves
54. Which is the most important character of asbestos that the author wants to show us? A. It is like thread. C. It burns easily. B. It feels soapy. D. It is unusually heavy.
55. The author’s main purpose in writing this passage was to _______. A. show the need for more scientists C. increase the sales of asbestos 【参考答案】52—55、CDAD
B. compare asbestos with other minerals D. present facts about asbestos
